Write a Book Proposal that Sells – Course Overview

Learn how to write a stellar non-fiction book proposal from scratch with Jennifer Chen Tran, a literary agent at Bradford Literary. In this three-week course, you will learn about the structure of a book-proposal and how to effectively craft the different sections of a book proposal, including the markets or audience section, competitive titles, platform, promotion and marketing, and other important considerations. Jennifer will share a variety of examples from proposals she has successfully sold to highlight the critical components of a persuasive proposal. She will also take questions at the end of each one-hour session.

Get Feedback on Your Book Proposal!

In addition to the live course sessions, all enrolled students are eligible to receive a personal critique of your book proposal. Jennifer will personally evaluate your draft book proposal and will give you specific, page-by-page, actionable suggestions describing how to improve your proposal so that you can ultimately capture the attention of an editor or agent. The proposal review is worth the course cost alone!

Please note your proposal must be submitted to Jennifer by email no later than July 9, 2020. Proposal evaluations are typically completed within ten business days of receipt.
